Fisher Brothers, an esteemed fourth-generation real estate company renowned for its ownership, management, and operation of distinctive properties nationwide, has announced the commencement of construction for Wynhouse Miami. This mixed-use multifamily development is poised to make a lasting impact in the heart of Miami’s vibrant Wynwood neighborhood. Soaring eight stories, Wynhouse Miami will encompass 308 rental residences, offering an exceptional living experience. With approximately 26,000 square feet of ground floor retail and paseo space and expansive indoor and outdoor amenities spanning nearly 25,000 square feet, this development promises a truly immersive lifestyle.

Located at 2200 Northwest 1st Avenue, this highly-amenitized development will transform the thriving Wynwood neighborhood with grand displays of public art across its facade and two public passageways, known as paseos, that will encourage pedestrians to engage with the building, community spaces, and ground-floor retail. Suffolk Construction is building the project; substantial completion is anticipated for January 2025. $117.5 million in financing was jointly provided by JP Morgan Chase and affiliates of Canyon Partners. Additionally, the company selected Wynhouse Miami for its first-ever offering on CrowdStreet, the online real estate crowdfunding platform. This opportunity is still ongoing.

Wynhouse Miami represents Fisher Brothers’ newest addition to its esteemed House brand, a portfolio of meticulously designed, amenity-rich multifamily developments that seamlessly integrate with their surrounding neighborhoods. Previous successful ventures under the House brand include House 39, featuring 297 residences in New York City’s Murray Hill neighborhood, and Station House, which offers 378 apartments in Washington, DC.

“Wynwood is a thriving neighborhood buzzing with energy at any given moment,” said Winston Fisher, Partner at Fisher Brothers. “We are excited to unveil our latest project in Fisher Brothers’ House brand of design-forward residential communities that complement the existing culture and liveliness of the neighborhood with a project of such distinct, innovative character. It’s been a pleasure working with the design team to bring our eclectic vision for Wynhouse Miami to life.”

Designed by ID & Design International (IDDI), Wynhouse Miami’s residences range from 474 to 1,405 square feet and feature a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom floorplans, and select penthouse units. IDDI implemented neutral tones with bold, colorful accents within the units’ interiors to complement the artistic, diverse community of Wynwood.

“As a South Florida-based interior design firm specializing in hospitality and multifamily developments, we took a deep dive approach to the design of Wynhouse Miami based on our fundamental understanding of the specific demographics and characteristics of this unique market,” said Sherif Ayad, President and CEO of ID & Design International. “This intimate knowledge of the Miami lifestyle resulted in modern residences that reflect the one-of-a-kind, inspired vibe of Wynwood.”

Wynhouse Miami is thoughtfully designed by Nichols Architects, who greatly honor Wynwood’s vibrant culture and storied past. Inspired by the neighborhood’s renowned graffiti street art and its transformation from an abandoned warehouse area into a thriving district, the architects draw inspiration from its hidden entrances, unexpected corridors, and interconnected alleyways. These distinctive elements serve as the foundation for the design of Wynhouse Miami. The inclusion of two paseos not only enhances the pedestrian experience and fosters greater connectivity within the neighborhood, inviting residents and the public to seamlessly navigate the ground-floor community spaces and savor the retail offerings. Langan Engineering is credited as the civil, geotechnical, environmental, and traffic engineer, and Witkin Hults + Partners serves as the landscape architect.

“The project pays homage to the industrial, craft-oriented nature of the historic neighborhood,” said Andrew James, Principal of Nichols Architects. “At the same time, the contemporary identity of Wynwood is being reinforced by the paseos, which will enhance the pedestrian realm, and the application of art throughout the development, which integrates a special emphasis on how the art will be perceived from the street and surrounding area.”

Wynhouse Miami will offer meticulously curated indoor and outdoor amenities masterfully designed by the acclaimed interdisciplinary architecture and design firm Rockwell Group. Inspired by the vibrant arts and culture scene of Wynwood, these amenities aim to capture the essence of the neighborhood. Spread across the lobby, second floor, and rooftop, these spaces serve as dynamic extensions of residents’ homes, enriching their lifestyles. The lobby welcomes residents with an eclectic and artistic lounge, setting the tone for the experience ahead. On the second floor, a lawn area, fitness center, co-working lounge with meeting and individual conference rooms, entertainment lounge, creative lounge, and expo kitchen are interconnected by a multi-story, indoor-outdoor courtyard adorned with planters and seating, providing a tranquil sanctuary. The rooftop is an oasis featuring a pool, spa, outdoor entertainment space, and barbeque area, offering breathtaking views of the vibrant neighborhood and the iconic Downtown Miami skyline.

“Wynwood is like a contemporary art museum turned inside out,” said David Rockwell, Founder and President of Rockwell Group. “We wanted to bring the energy and creativity of the streets into Wynhouse Miami, with a celebration of industrial materials that link the lounges, bars, and courtyards to the history of the area.”

“Wynwood is one of the largest and most prominent creative communities in the United States that has undergone a transformation over the past few years. We are thrilled to welcome a new project to continue to shape the neighborhood’s next chapter that pays homage to its unique and distinct character,” said Manny Gonzalez, Executive Director of the Wynwood Business Improvement District.

With a strong focus on client service and a wide range of experience across various sectors, Suffolk has established itself as a leader in the industry, continually driving innovation and harnessing cutting-edge technologies to enhance the construction process and deliver more reliable and predictable outcomes.
